The Seven Words on the Cross
by Saint Robert Bellarmine
read by Maria Lectrix
part 2 of 38

An examination of, and meditation upon, the seven sayings spoken by Jesus on the cross - "the seven last words" - as well as the associated total solar eclipse. Every saying is examined from different perspectives, each intended to make the reader think more deeply about Jesus' life and death and feel the sayings' applications to his own life. The writer also provides various suggestions for enriching one's faith life and doing good.

Saint Robert Bellarmine was a famous and controversial figure, deeply involved in the Counter-Reformation, apologetics, theological disputes, and the development of legal theory. His work eventually provided the natural law underpinnings for the American Revolution. After his retirement, he wrote several devotional books for normal people which became international bestsellers, including this book, The Mind's Ascent to God, and The Art of Dying Well. He is counted a Doctor of the Church.
